Gunnery, Cochrane, Peter Weir, medicine and more
I should think everyone here has already seen it, but I don't think I've heard mention of it myself so maybe not. I just encountered a 45-minute YouTube video, about Master and Commander and comparing it to the actual period and situations. They talk about medicine and amputations, splinters in combat, gunnery, disguising ships, the constructions of the USS Constitution, Lord Cochrane and much more. Very interesting.
